We have had our broadband speed tester going for over ten years now. For a recent project, we compiled speed test results from the city of Adelaide.
Adelaide Internet speeds remained consistent for almost a decade, but over the last few years, we have seen improvement in broadband speeds.
Netflix has introduced a new mobile app for users to test their internet speed. When launched, the FAST Speed Test app instantly begins reading and displaying the user’s internet speed, and the results can be compared against SpeedTest.net. The app only displays download speed, as Netflix believes that is the most useful information for most users about their overall internet experience. Netflix uses its own internal services and technology to conduct the app’s series of download tests, including downloading pieces of a 25 MB video file using a variable number of parallel connections.
